Event Details

Disruption isn't over, it's just symptomatic of a much larger convergence of automation, advanced material design and construction principles, and intercommunications creating alternative value chains.

Regardless of your technical skills, business acumen or adaptive sensibilities, we invite you to join the strategy management practices issues group (SMPIG) to discuss the management challenges associated with concepts labeled the 4th Industrial Revolution, the Digital Estate and sometimes referred to as Digitalization.

Don't know the terms, don't worry. We've curated a few articles (listed below) to help focus the monthly peer to peer discussion. This month, we'll engage in some free thinking and visioning around new business models, transitions and/or survival strategies related to the 4th industrial revolution.

WHEN: Friday April 20, 7:30 am-8:45 am

WHERE: Lockton Corporation, 500 W. Monroe
